Battleship, Mint-Chocolate-Chip, & Orange Rind

Medium: Archival Pigment Canson Platine Print
Year: 2020

This photograph belongs to the series "Isolation Games." At the dawn of 2020, as universal freedoms were renegotiated and the world receded into quarantine, our lifestyles were consequently fraught with apprehension. The surreal stillness forced many inside, ultimately shifting routines and psychologies across the board. While passing the time at home during isolation, these photographs depict distraction and amusement in a newly-skewed world. The missile-fired faux-simulation was cemented into my mid-80s childhood mind, like many from that generation growing up in America. The prospect of a hit-win conjured memories from a seemingly easier and simpler time, at least as our naive young minds perceived it then. The intermittent radar blip-beeps and sudden shutdowns of the classic board's failing electronic memory now feel ironic in the socio-political fourth-turning of adulthood. I digress, it's merely a nostalgic game, though history remains an oft-unheeded lesson to righting the evolutionary ship of our shared humanity. Christos is a 1st-gen Greek-American fine-artist whose photographs probe themes of socioeconomics, culture, history, and architecture. As strong symbolic sparks in a frenetic 21st-century, his creative intrigue is informed by identity, connection, nostalgia, and isolation.
